Ilargi Meijer : Treason? Get A Life!

Yeah, just keep ’em coming, right, so that when the last one falls flat on its face people will have already forgotten about it and instead focus on the new one. It’s been the modus operandi of the US MSM ever since Donald Trump emerged as an actual presidential candidate, and they haven’t let go.

That Vladimir Putin is an existential threat to the US and indeed the entire western world is a narrative taken straight out of Edward Bernays’ playbook. And it works like a charm. The problem is, it is also the biggest threat to peace anywhere on the globe that we have ever seen since WWII.

Putin is a patriot who came to the fore in mostly unexplained ways, named by American puppet Boris Yeltsin as his successor, only to save his country from US-induced plundering and restore Russia as a functioning country. Far from perfect, but functioning.

DEM CONGRESSMAN CALLS FOR MILITARY COUP TO REMOVE TRUMP, THEN BACKTRACKS

MSNBC contributor and top “resistance” activist Scott Dworkin also responded to Trump’s meeting with Putin by calling for Hillary Clinton to be installed as president.

“Trump and Pence should be removed from office and we should either have a new election, or Hillary Clinton should take over. That’s how we beat Putin. There is no other way,” tweeted Dworkin.

HOUSE DEMOCRAT CALLS FOR ‘MILITARY FOLKS’ TO STOP TRUMP

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup.

Robert Kennedy Jr. launches first lawsuit of thousands against Monsanto alleging herbicide Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma

Environmental attorney Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has filed the first of what he termed “several thousand” lawsuits against agri-giant Monsanto, alleging that its widely-used herbicide Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Jurors in San Francisco heard hours of scientific data about the chemical’s link to the disease, which has a high survival rate after five years, but which can cause others to become terminally ill.

Kennedy, who is also the chairman of the World Mercury Project, said in a recent interview with Del Bigtree, host of The HighWire show, said gardeners, agricultural workers, farmers and others who are exposed regularly to Roundup are most at risk.

FBI: Lisa Page Dimes Out Top FBI Officials During Classified House Testimony; Bureau Bosses Covered Up Evidence China Hacked Hillary’s Top Secret Emails

Former top FBI lawyer Lisa Page testified during two days of closed-door House hearings, revealing shocking new Intel against her old bosses at the Bureau, according the well-placed FBI sources.

Alarming new details on allegations of a bureau-wide cover up. Or should we say another bureau-wide cover up.

The embattled Page tossed James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and Bill Priestap among others under the Congressional bus, alleging the upper echelon of the FBI concealed intelligence confirming Chinese state-backed ‘assets’ had illegally acquired former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 30,000+ “missing” emails, federal sources said.

The Russians didn’t do it. The Chinese did, according to well-placed FBI sources.

And while Democratic lawmakers and the mainstream media prop up Russia as America’s boogeyman, it was the ironically Chinese who acquired Hillary’s treasure trove of classified and top secret intelligence from her home-brewed private server.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Again, IF these charges are true......they demonstrate, upon discovery, a hopelessly politicized DOJ and FBI.

Here Are The Democrats Preparing To Take On Trump In 2020

Leading the pack, at least according to the Times, is none other than Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. While she hasn't announced a run for the White House, has been actively campaigning across the country ahead of midterms to help key Democrats in their races, while her emissaries have been reaching out to officeholders in Nevada, South Carolina and Iowa - three states in the presidential primary calendar.

'Murica: The "Rule-Of-Law-Optional" Nation

So, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page declined to testify before a congressional committee because she didn’t feel like it. Apparently we’re now a rule-of-law-optional nation. Until recently, we were merely reality-optional. That was fun, but when officers of the country’s leading law enforcement agency go optional on standard legal procedure, like answering subpoenas, then we’re truly in the land where anything goes (and nothing matters).

Soros-Backed Group Emerges to Fight Trump’s SCOTUS Pick

A political advocacy group founded in early 2018 seeks to stop the confirmation of US President Donald Trump’s pick for Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh, to replace outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Demand Justice has committed to spending $5 million to fight the confirmation of Kavanaugh and aims to raise $10 million in 2018, according to a New York Times article featuring an interview with Brian Fallon, the group's executive director.

No Evidence In Mueller's Indictment Of 12 Russians - Release Now May Sabotage Upcoming Summit

Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, who announced the indictment, also made three points that will likely get little coverage. He said (video) that there are no allegations in the indictment that:

any American knew that they were in contact with Russians or with a Russian operation,

any American committed a crime in relation to this,

that the operation changed or influenced the election.

The indictment, which may well be made up and is unlikely to ever be tested in court, will reinforce the "Russia is an enemy" campaign which was launched way before the 2016 election. It will reinforce the believe of some Democrats that Russia, and not the selection of a disgusting candidate, cost Hillary Clinton the presidency.

US House Approved Latest Version of the Israel Anti-Boycott Act

Late last month, the US House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee approved the latest version of the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, which is now one step closer to becoming law. The bill was introduced to Congress in March 2017, with the aim of prohibiting American companies from assisting international governmental organisations with boycotts against Israel. These organisations include the UN, whose high commissioner for human rights was tasked two years ago with drawing up a database of companies doing business in the illegal settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, and the EU, whose trade regulations discourage business with settlements but fall short of prohibiting it. Even an individual in the US who supplies information about infringing companies to these bodies could be liable to a civil fine of up to $250,000, or a criminal penalty of up to $1 million.

Ray McGovern: Strzok Hoisted on His Own Petard

It is always necessary at this point to note that the heads of the FBI, CIA, NSA and even the Department of Justice were operating, as former FBI Director James Comey later put it, in an environment “where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump.” Most of them expected to be able to stay in their key positions and were confident they would receive plaudits — not indictments — for the liberties that they, the most senior U.S. law enforcement officials, took with the law. In other words, once the reality that Mrs. Clinton was seen by virtually everyone to be a shoo-in is taken into account, the mind boggles a lot less.

Mueller Spox “Declines to Comment” on Putin’s Offer For Mueller to Send Reps to Russia to Observe Questioning of Indicted Military Officers

Putin said in Monday’s presser that the Russian Federation has an existing treaty with the United States dating back to 1999 which quite efficiently, mutually assists on criminal cases.

The Russian president offered transparency following Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian military officers.

Watch Putin offer for Mueller to send representatives to Russia to observe the questioning of their military intel officers indicted by the Special Counsel:

Mueller’s spokesman responded to Putin’s offer on Monday and said the Office of Special Counsel will “decline to comment.”

PUTIN DROPS BOMB AT HELSINKI PRESSER: Says US Intelligence Helped Move $400,000,000 to HILLARY Campaign!!

Vladimir Putin: Last year there was one extradition case by the United States… Mueller can use this treaty as an official request to us… in this case this kind of effort should be a reciprical one… For instance we can bring up Mr. Browder… They sent a huge amount of money $400,000,000 to Hillary Clinton!

Putin offered permitting officials in the US, including Mueller, to Russia to assist in their investigation of the supposed Trump-Russia collusion story. Then Putin dropped his bomb where the US could reciprocate Russia in one of their investigations –

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these accusations prove true (and you can bet that NO ONE in intelligence, justice, or defense in this country wants to touch this with a 5,000 ft. poll), this is absolutely huge.

Chris Wallace asks Putin why so many of his political enemies 'end up dead'

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Monday pushed Russian President Vladimir Putin after the leader brushed off the deaths of his political enemies.

Wallace sat down with the Russian leader in Helsinki and asked how come “so many people who were political enemies of Vladimir Putin are attacked?”

The Cape is now The Sovereign State of Good Hope

The Sovereign State of Good Hope (SSGH) took down the South African flag and hoisted their flag in Cape Town on 16 July 2018 at 11h00.

Parliament in Cape Town has been served with an Eviction Notice to vacate the property by Friday, 20 July 2018.

The Sovereign State of Good Hope is the formation of a new sovereign nation state being the result of a legitimate and lawful process of secession by the traditional hereditary tribal leader of the Khoisan Nation, Gaob (which loosely translates to King in English) Khoebaha Calvin Cornelius III.

This territory includes most of what is currently known as the Cape province of South Africa, and extends to the northern border of the Cape and ends at the Fish River on the eastern frontier.

US government exposed: for 30 years, it broke the law on vaccine safety Jul16

For 30 years, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) broke the law regarding vaccine safety, and no one noticed or cared.

Then two men came along and discovered the scandal: Robert F Kennedy, Jr. (twitter), head of the World Mercury Project, and Del Bigtree (twitter 1, twitter 2, FB, web), the producer of the film Vaxxed. They filed papers in court, and they won their case.

Here is the issue in a nutshell: In 1986, a law, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, was passed. It insanely excused vaccine makers from legal liability stemming from unsafe vaccines and the injuries they cause. Buried in the law was a provision ordering the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to update Congress, every two years, on its efforts to improve vaccine safety.

Kennedy and Bigtree thought it would be very interesting to read these HHS reports—all 16 of them. So they filed a Freedom of Information Act request, and then…nothing. No replies.

The tide is turning: Big Pharma billionaire arrested, charged with conspiracy and bribery of doctors

I almost never thought I’d see the day when a Big Pharma founder and owner was finally arrested for running a criminal drug cartel, but that day has arrived.

“Federal authorities arrested the billionaire founder and owner of Insys Therapeutics Thursday on charges of bribing doctors and pain clinics into prescribing the company’s fentanyl product to their patients,” reports the Daily Caller News Foundation, one of the best sources of real journalism in America today.

Addictive drugs that include opioids, we now know, are claiming over 64,000 lives a year in the United States alone.

Pat Buchanan: "Trump Calls Off Cold War II"

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org.

Beginning his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin, President Trump declared that U.S. relations with Russia have “never been worse.”

He then added pointedly, that just changed “about four hours ago.”

It certainly did. With his remarks in Helsinki and at the NATO summit in Brussels, Trump has signaled a historic shift in U.S. foreign policy that may determine the future of this nation and the fate of his presidency.

He has rejected the fundamental premises of American foreign policy since the end of the Cold War and blamed our wretched relations with Russia, not on Vladimir Putin, but squarely on the U.S. establishment.

In a tweet prior to the meeting, Trump indicted the elites of both parties: “Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even Pat Buchanan makes the revisionist historian mistake with Crimea's choice to align with the Russian Federation, after the 2014 putsch in Kiev.

This, if you will turn on your mental "way back machine" to the date and time of the spring of 2014, threw the duly elected Yanukovych under the proberbial bus, and "anointed" Poroshenko as President of Ukraine in an election more crooked that is a dog's hind leg.

Even President Obama had to admit that the US took part in structuring the deal to ease Yanukovych out, and get Poroshenko in, because he was, allegedly, more Western-centric, rather than Russian centric.
Washington was behind the Ukrainian coup; Obama admits that US brokered a deal in support of regime change
United States spent 5 billion dollars for anti-government riots in Ukraine

When Crimean officials realized that there was no duly elected government in Kiev, they did two things. First, in a free and fair referendum, post-putsch, they invited their citizens to vote on whether they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or join the Russian Federation; the vote was overwhelmingly affirmative to join the Russian Federation. Then, Crimea petitioned the Russian Federation for membership, and they were granted that membership.

Peaceful self-determination is one of the most treasured elements in the UN charter to which, I believe, the US is allegedly a signatory. But in its anti-Russian agenda, this cannot be allowed to be viewed by the US or NATO as peaceful self-determination, on the part of Crimea, but an annexation by Russia, which never, ever happened here.

Consequently, we have had more Russia bashing by NATO and the US government, coupled with more economic sanctions against it.

So Pat, before you permanently "swallow the koolaid" on this issue, that Russia annexed Crimea, you need to slow down, and acquaint yourself with the real history here, which you are bending to suit your perspective.

There was no annexation; there was a US-coordinated "regime change", causing Crimean officials to realize that there was no just, representative government in Kiev post-putsch. Let's do something daring, and deal with reality here, shall we?!?

PUTIN’S CLAIM - “$400 MILLION STOLEN FROM RUSSIA AND GIVEN TO THE CLINTONS”

If you watched the Trump-Putin press meeting you heard a lot of hot air, during and after.

One thing jumped out at me: Putin’s claim that a US venture capitalist Bill Browder stole over $1 billion from Russia and gave $400 million to the Clintons.

Did ANY news outlet -right or left – follow up on that?

No – but Brasscheck did.

What’s the deal?

Unipolar Imperial Spin: How Liberalism Operationalizes The ANTIFA New Left

Antifa came into history as Antifaschtische Aktion, a coalition of militant leftist groups involved with the Communist Party of Germany in the 1930s. Far-left militants have had a history of opposing fascism ever since Mussolini’s black-clad paramilitary stomped their way throughout Italy in the 1920’s. These groups didn’t exist in a vacuum, and were rooted in the fighting militant labor unions and syndicates 80 years ago. In other words, an entirely different class basis and ideological orientation than antifa today. However, the west has undergone vast material, cultural, and spiritual changes since the Second World War. New ideological superstructures and imperialist directives have formed; And, in response, new tactics of resistance have come into play. In the midst of new political circumstances, strategically identifying new friends and new enemies is of necessity.

Riverdale alumni express outrage after elite NYC school cancels Israeli-Palestinian conflict class following parent pressure

However, one thing is certain: Joel Doerfler had no involvement whatsoever. He was neither in the classroom, nor in any way implicated in how another teacher responded to a discussion with his students. There is no reason why an incident involving Mr. Redden should have had any bearing on Mr. Doerfler.

Nonetheless, a group of Riverdale parents, some of whom no longer have children at the school, used the incident as an opportunity to attack Joel Doerfler. Following Mr. Redden’s suspension, this group of parents launched what appears to be a smear campaign against Mr. Doerfler and his course on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Their efforts culminated in a forum of parents and administrators in the school auditorium, where Mr. Doerfler was attacked on political grounds.

Putin Claims U.S. Intelligence Agents Funneled $400 Million To Clinton Campaign

Vladimir Putin made a bombshell claim during Monday's joint press conference with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, when the Russian President said some $400 million in illegally earned profits was funneled to the Clinton campaign by associates of American-born British financier Bill Browder - at one time the largest foreign portfolio investors in Russia. The scheme involved members of the U.S. intelligence community, said Putin, who he said "accompanied and guided these transactions."

Browder made billions in Russia during the 90's. In December, a Moscow court sentenced Browder in absentia to nine years in prison for tax fraud, while he was also found guilty of tax evasion in a separate 2013 case. Putin accused Browder's associates of illegally earning over than $1.5 billion without paying Russian taxes, before sending $400 million to Clinton.

911: The impossible Cell Phone calls

I chat to Frederick C. Blackburn (also known as blackbird9) who studied engineering and then became an electrical engineer and had a career in IT. He had a Top Secret clearance in the USA. He gave lectures to: Military and Naval Intelligence personnel as well as NSA, CIA and FBI personnel about cell phone and other technology.

We discuss his specialist knowledge with regard to cell phones and why the cell phone technology of 911 did not allow cell phone calls to be received from people in planes. On 911 there were between 15-40 alleged cell phone calls from people on aircraft before the planes crashed into the Twin Towers or elsewhere. Frederick explains why those phone calls were impossible. 911 changed his life because he realised immediately that the collapsing towers as well as the cell phone calls were utterly impossible.

Trump Asked About Russian Election Interference – Replies ‘Where Is the Server?’

Earlier today, President Trump held a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. This was the opportunity the liberal media has been salivating to get, pitting the U.S. President against the leader of the country we know had something to do with the hacking of DNC emails.

For years, we’ve heard the same refrain over and over again: Russia “hacked the election” (whatever that means) and the Trump campaign may have been working with them to make it happen. No evidence has been presented to prove that assertion, but it hasn’t stopped liberals from making it anyway.

Now, in a testy exchange with reporters, Trump just shut down the Russian collusion narrative with one simple question: Where the hell is the DNC server the Russians reportedly hacked emails from? Why hasn’t the FBI been allowed to take a hold of it?

Ailing May loses ANOTHER minister to Tory Brexit war as Guto Bebb quits to vote AGAINST the PM's concession to Brexiteer rebels that critics claim has already killed off her Chequers plan

Mr Bebb resigned as a Defence Minister to defy orders and vote against an amendment to the Customs Bill which critics claim kills off the Prime Minister's own proposed Brexit deal.

In farcical scenes, Mr Bebb's rebellion helped slash the Government's majority to just three during a marathon series of votes in the Commons.

There were 14 Tory Remain rebels and the Government only won because it had the backing of three Brexiteer Labour MPs.

While Mrs May will survive the night without defeat, losing a tenth member of her top team - this time from the Remain wing - over her first detailed Brexit plan will add acute embarrassment to her political woes.

This Is IT, Folks...The END Of The Beginning Of The End...According To This, Hillary And ALL Her Ilk Are Officially Burnt Toast

Putin: "For instance, we can bring up Mr. Browder, in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over $1.5 billion in Russia and never paid any taxes neither in Russia or the United States and yet the money escaped the country. They were transferred to the United States. They sent [a] huge amount of money, $400,000,000, as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well that’s their personal case. It might have been legal, the contribution itself but the way the money was earned was illegal. So we have solid reason to believe that some [US] intelligence officers accompanied and guided these transactions. So we have an interest in questioning them.

Socialist Takeover of The Democratic Party

Socialism is the new ideological norm of the Democratic party. With candidates endorsed by the Democratic Socialist party winning nominations for state legislative seats and far-left progressives triumphing over traditional moderates elsewhere, the proof is in the pudding.
With the victory of 28-year-old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, who was an entrenched liberal with hope to replace House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as party leader, the Democrats have apparently lost control of their own party to the extremist faction.

Dershowitz: SCOTUS Confirmation Process Has Gotten Out Of Hand

The framers of our constitution would be turning over in their graves if they could see what happened to their words "with the advice and consent of the senate."

Now senators neither advise nor consent to Supreme Court nominations. They politicize, delay, demonize, obscure, fabricate and discredit what should be a non-partisan process of assuring that the most qualified lawyers serve on our highest court. Instead we have come to expect votes that are cast largely along party lines.

It was not always what it has now become. Even in the recent past, highly qualified but controversial nominees -- such as Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsberg -- were confirmed with hardly any dissents. No more.

Adam Garrie: US Veto Power, A Weapon of Mass Obstruction Granting Impunity for Israeli Killings

Geopolitical expert Adam Garrie says that the Israeli regime’s possession of nuclear weapons and the American veto power at the UN Security Council have provided the regime with a feeling of impunity for their daily violations of international laws.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with FNA, Adam Garrie said that the US exercises its veto power “like a weapon of mass obstruction” to shield the Zionist regime at the UN Security Council.

Mr. Garrie believes that the US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, acts more like the Ambassador of the Zionist regime than that of the United States. He likened the UN Security Council to “a shopping center where Zionist propaganda is for sale” and the US envoy to “a shop keeper lying to her customers” while trying to insult the intelligence of the whole world.

Peter Strzok worked for the CIA and FBI at the same time

Peter Strzok worked 24 years for the CIA. His job title was Chief of their Counterespionage Group.

The FBI never had such a unit.

Strzok (pronounced Strock, rhymes with sock) led the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton. She used personal email for classified government business while she was Secretary of State.

The FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the election of Donald J. Trump as President was also led by Strzok.

A joint CIA/FBI position was created by Congress in 1996. Strzok was "a senior FBI official" by being the CIA’s Chief of Counterespionage.

Dancing FBI Agent Who Shot Fellow Bar-Goer Gets Gun Back While Charge Pending

A Denver judge agreed to let an FBI agent carry his firearm again while he considers a possible plea deal to felony charges stemming from an off-duty incident.

FBI agent Chase Bishop, 29, a D.C-based special agent that was visiting Denver for training last month when he allegedly shot a man at Mile High Spirits in the city’s LoDo downtown area, was in court on Tuesday over his resulting charge of assault in the second degree, a class 4 felony.

Bishop’s lawyer told Judge Fran Simonet that the agency strongly encourages agents to carry their duty weapons both on and off duty, according to CBS 11. With that, Simonet agreed that the agent could resume carrying his firearm.

Under conditions set by the court, Bishop is not allowed to drink or use drugs while his case is pending, the Associated Press reported. He reportedly has delayed an evidentiary hearing to weigh a plea deal offered this week by Denver prosecutors.

Peter Strzok’s arrogance is the product of a corrupt FBI

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad.

Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted.

Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of his malignant presence on the FBI payroll?

My answers can be summarized in four names: James Comey, Jeff Sessions, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray. They are chief culprits in the death of public trust in the Department of Justice.

The cause of death was murder, and it was an inside job.

In rebuke of Dianne Feinstein, Kevin de León wins endorsement of California Democrats in Senate race

California Democratic Party leaders took a step to the left Saturday night, endorsing liberal state lawmaker Kevin de León for Senate in a stinging rebuke of Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

De León’s victory reflected the increasing strength of the state party’s liberal activist core, which was energized by the election of Republican Donald Trump as president.

The endorsement was an embarrassment for Feinstein, who is running for a fifth full term, and indicates that Democratic activists in California have soured on her reputation for pragmatism and deference to bipartisanship as Trump and a Republican-led Congress are attacking Democratic priorities on immigration, healthcare and environmental protections.

Gowdy rules out Rosenstein impeachment

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Sunday ruled out the possibility of impeaching Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, saying there is not enough support for his ouster.

"Impeach him for what?" Gowdy said on CBS's "Face the Nation." "No."

"I'm not convinced there is a movement," Gowdy added, citing Politico's recent report that a group of GOP lawmakers are preparing to impeach Rosenstein.

Conservatives frustrated with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election have long targeted Rosenstein. Some lawmakers claim he has delayed their investigation into FBI agents involved in Mueller's investigation who they feel are biased against President Trump.
